It will be your choice of mattress which will ensure your comfort in bed but your style of bed can provide an eye-catching centerpiece. Many beds can be purchased with matching bedside drawers to provide an even bigger statement piece. Chests of drawers and wardrobes can also be bought to match, giving your bedroom that showhouse feel. There are bigger and bigger beds arriving on the market all the time and there are a variety to choose from, such as bedsteads, air beds, water beds, divans, sofa beds, adjustable beds or sprung base beds. Bedsteads are beds which are usually made with a wooden frame. The base of the bed has wooden slats on which sits the mattress. Some of these beds can be made from metal and have metal or mesh slats for supporting the mattress.
There has been little study or publication about the risks and benefits of bed rails. However, the reports of adult deaths and injuries from bed rails on file with the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) (incidents from 1993 to 1996) provide significant information for attorneys investigating a potential negligence claim. The CPSC information reflects that seventy-four patients died as a result of the use of bed rails. Moreover, it in not unrealistic to conclude that the actual number of patient deaths far exceeded the reported deaths. Regardless of the true frequency of deaths, 70% of the reported patient deaths resulted from entrapment between the mattress and the bed rail such that the patient’s face was pressed against the mattress. 18% percent of the reported deaths were the result of entrapment and compression of the neck within the bed rails. Finally, 12% twelve percent of the reported deaths were caused by being trapped by the rails after sliding partially off the bed, resulting in neck flexion and chest compression.
What you don‘t see is hotels suing guests who bring bed bugs with them. Adept hitchhikers, they enter hotel rooms in guests‘ luggage or on their clothing. Most won‘t leave with the guest; they‘ll nest in and near the bed awaiting the next occupant and their next meal. Bed bugs are not a sanitation issue. About the size of an apple seed, the tiny nocturnal pests are nuisance parasites that feed on human blood. They do not transmit disease but can cause considerable emotional distress. In about 50% of their victims, bed bug bites produce itchy red welts that may take two days to develop, complicating detection. Many hotel guests check out before an infestation is discovered. Prolific breeders, females can produce up to 500 eggs during their one-year lifespan.
Air beds are also known as blow up mattresses and are commonly used for camping as they are convenient and easy to carry. A lot of these air beds come with foot pumps but can be blown up in minutes with an electric pump. Air beds are also great for visiting guests. Water beds are just that - beds filled with water! There are two types of water bed, soft sided water bed or hard sided water bed. The more expensive water beds are made to lessen the wave effect which was common in the early models. Water beds are usually heated and a thermostat controls the temperature.
